Call of Nominations

November 1, 2018

Dear SIP Members:

One of the activities for which I am responsible as Past President of the Interamerican Society of Psychology is the call for nominations to constitute SIP’s Board of Directors for the period 2017-2019. I invite you to consider nominating yourself or a colleague for a position of leadership in the SIP. You should note that any nomination must have prior authorization of the person who is being nominated.

In this election cycle, we will be electing a President for the SIP. By constitutional mandate, the country of the president elect will be from the South American region since our Constitution establishes the rotation of presidencies by regions. The current President, Dr. Sandra Luna is from the region of México, Central America and the Caribbean; the President-elect, Dr. Carlos Zalaquett is from the region of North America and I, the Past President, Dr. Hugo Klappenbach am from the South American region. It is now the turn for this last region, so the nominee must belong to one of the countries located in South America.

We will be also choosing the Vice-presidents for each of the three regions, the Treasurer, and the National Representatives for each country.
As a democratic society, every member can participate in the nomination and election for and from all regions with the exception of the election of national representatives, which is limited to members from the national representative country. Only active or lifetime members of the SIP can participate in the nomination and election process. To participate in the nomination and elections members must be current with membership fees. If you need to renew or want to become a member to participate in this process, access online at For any questions regarding your membership, please contact the SIP Central Office at

The nominations will begin on November 1, 2018 and close on December 15, 2018 (11:59pm Eastern time). To participate in the process, access the following link where you will find additional instructions:

Thank you for your participation and commitment to our Society, greetings cordially,

Hugo Klappenbach
Past President
